PPU Charity Table Quiz 2019

March 7th 2019.

Our annual Table quiz and raffle takes place on Thursday,7th March, 2019. We hope you can come along to an always good fun night with every single euro going to charity. This year our charity is Debra Ireland whose CEO is our own Jimmy Fearon (1983) and Jonno Sexton is one of their ambassadors.

The format of the quiz is 10 rounds of ten questions with 2 points for each correct answer and occasionally a single point for a partially correct answer. Rounds 3, 6, and 9 are picture rounds. It is tables of 4 people (occasionally 5) at €10 per person.

DEBRA Ireland is the national charity established in 1988 to provide patient support services and to drive research into treatments and cures for those living with the genetic skin condition, epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Our patients who have EB, have skin that is as delicate and fragile as the wings of a butterfly, and just as easily damaged. EB has been described by a Consultant Dermatologist in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital as “easily the most debilitating and devastating disease I have ever seen.” The condition is extremely painful and leads to disability and deformity. Many of our patients who survive childhood face the frightening reality that they could develop a very aggressive form of skin cancer, due to the constant breakdown of their skin.

DEBRA Ireland offers hope and support to these patients, which is only possible thanks to the ongoing generosity from people like you.
